Ignore the slanty sentiment... I know it's crooked... focus with me. Look at the pretty background on this Bravo Burgundy card. It features the best-kept secret in the entire Holiday 2012 Catalog--the Illuminate Watermark Ink Pad!! That thing is awesome! Whatever color you stamp it on acquires a translucent shimmer just a shade darker and slightly pearlescent from the original color. LOVE IT! It's like a modern update on the old Encore pads that used to vascilate between opaque and translucent and drive you nuts. I know, I know, "that's not a drive, it's a putt." Yuk yuk yuk... thank you, hubby.
Illuminate is shy, though, and it doesn't like to be photographed! So you can't see it on this card. When you stamp it on Whisper White or Very Vanilla, it doesn't really show unless the light hits it. Then you can see all the subtle sheen and details that I added with the Flowering Flourishes stamp set on these elegant cards.
Did you miss this product when you were perusing the catalog? It's on page 23, and trust me, order it, and you might as well get the refill now, too, because this is going to become one of your most-loved ink pads in a hurry!
